Go Blue: Michigan Vs Illinois

Another Saturday and another road game for the Wolverines traveling to Il to meet the fighting Illini at Memorial Stadium in Campaign.

After last weeks disappointing loss, MI is likely to come out shooting and you better believe moving up to an 8-2 record for the year is on Brady Hokes game plan today. Illinois will likely have something to say about that with the bitter taste of last years game still in the mouth when MI won in triple overtime in an 67-65 thriller that was arguably one of the most exciting games for MI last season.

Don't expect to see that kind of score today, as the Michigan defense has been holding their own this year and for some reason Denard has NOT been the scrambling play-maker he was last year. He can still move but he has almost been pushed into a roll of a pass first pocket QB and it sometimes seems like the only thing they are doing is taking the wind out of his sails. That being said they still have the ability to score fast and often but away from the big house is always a challenge.

The fighting Illini has some playmakers here too and QB Nathan Scheelhaase can make good decisions, but he needs to keep from getting sacked and excecute quickly to move the ball for IL.

This afternoon Michigan will be hosted by Illinois for an exciting game. All we can say for sure is that  the the team the plays the best will walk away the winner.
